Lesson 13 How the Leopard Got His Spots
We read a literary text about "How the Leopard Got His Spots" last week. We learned about the rain forests and real leopards using informational text and other media. We created a fact list of all the details we learned about leopards from our selection of text and media. The students than used this list to write an informational article about leopards using details they could read and write. The students used tracing paper to copy one of the illustrators drawing from the literary story and they added that to their article. We also make a leopard print card during the week. The students used informational text to learn and draw other rain forest animals. They created their own mural with details about the rain forest in our hallway.
